    I have a now fairly ancient partition-managing app.

    I wish to resize partitions on an external USB drive.
    The app sees the drive OK, and accepts instructions.
    Then it insists on rebooting. I do not know why - the drive is used for backup only.
    On reboot it cannot see the USB drive, and aborts.

    Please: will Disk Director do better?

    That worked! and quickly;

    but(!) -
    when the task was finished Windows showed an error Message Box quoting:

    Instruction: 0x01110280
    Memory: 0x00000000
    could not be: written

    I have no idea of the significance of this.
    Google seems not to have heard of 0x01110280 either.
